Back in November 2004 when Textmate was new and had an ugly, ugly icon, I did some simple research. I placed all the icons of current OS X editors around a wheel and concluded that Textmate should either have a cyan or pink/purple icon, with a recommendation for the purple end of things.
That recommendation was taken up, and I'm glad to see the colours carried through to the beautiful new icon for Textmate 2.
A very small contribution on my part, but as Textmate is a tool I use to earn my living, it's one I'm fond of.

I remember this. That's cool.
I think I'm less worrying about why the colour is purple, and more about why it's a flower. The name, nor use doesn't give me any suggestions.
Smultron is a strawberry. Coda is a leaf. Doesnt have to be related. Just hast to be memorable.
